Leadership training awards presented

Youth Leadership Training Certificates were presented to Kilcullen Youth Club (KiYC) members at an enjoyable event at the weekend, writes Brian Byrne.

The Certificates acknowledged the completion of courses under the auspices of the Erasmus+ project, jointly undertaken by KiYC and Western Education & Library Board's Youth Service in Northern Ireland, under the banner of the Aspirations (North & South) Exchange Project.

The northern group organised the OCN Leadership training, while the southern contingent provided workshops in Bully Busting and First Aid.

The programme involved NI participants spending a week as guests of KiYC, and Kilcullen young people visiting their counterparts in Strabane, last summer.

Recipients of OCN Certificates were Sarah Byrne, Caoimhe O Callaghan, Jade Bennett, Peter Truman, Arran Collins and Clare Murphy. Minor Leadership awards were presented to Robbie Green and Niamh Byrne.

Conor Patrick received a Gaisce Bronze Award, and Basic Junior First Aid awards were presented to Brandon NG and Emma Dunleavy, both of whom also received Youthpass awards.
